A Rose.

I have been in my element these past few days as my mum is here visiting from Wales, UK.  We have had a lovely day, starting with exploring the Market in Delft, Netherlands.  We found a lovely stall that sold really gorgeous material. (more about that coming soon ! ) .. We spent the afternoon relaxing watching Breaking Dawn 2 ( Brilliant film) and making crotchet Roses.  They are so pretty and I just have to share them with you.

I especially love how quick they are to do and the endless possibilities for them.  You can choose any yarn you like really, I have made these with 100% cotton.   The crotchet hook I used was 3 3/4 , I guess you can experiment and use whatever you want. 

So have a look and let me know what you think .

Chain 42 .

Next row.  Chain 2, Turn then ( DC,2C,miss one ) continue to end

All the way to the end.
2chain. Turn. 1DC 2 Chain 2 DC, (2dc,2ch,2dc) in every space.

Like this ..... all the way to the end

Change colour .... ( if you want ) 5dc in every 2chain space, 1ss in middle of other 4 dc..  like this.

Darn in the ends neatly with a darning needle.
Roll it up ... like so

Can you see what I mean ?

The Rose ... isn't it lovely ?
 I love making these and have made a few in a small amount of time.  They are great for decorating things, for broaches, scarfs, gloves, bags or anything really.   I hope that you enjoy making them.  I did.

The bowl is a present from my Mum ( I Love it )

3 different shades.  The bowl was handmade by my talented sister .. here is a link to her blog

Have fun....
